I am ver new to java. I've been doing cobol type work for the last 3 years and just 3 weeks ago my project finished and I started studying java. Before I went on the bench I read a beginers book. My company is pressureing me about finishing up my studies and passing the exam. But I don't want to just pass is, I want to get at least 80 %. Until I started looking up people who've already passed it I thougt I could just study for a month and then get a realy good score. But now I'm realy scared. This one sight I went to said I have to study night and day for 4 month before I can pass it. Is is realy that hard passing 50 multiple choice questions.
I already read most of the book called complete java2 certification study guid. Isn't that good enough.
does everyone who take this exam have some prior java experience. I am trying to use my certification as a tool of getting a different job. Is it possible?
After going to these sight I'm getting realy scared. On the otherhand I am in a big rush.
if you had no knowledge of java and then studied it for a month and you passed please let me know. It would realy calm me down thanks.

Take it easy Mr Kuorosh.The exam is not that tough.The only thing really necessary to pass AND get a good score is clear fundamantals of Java.Since u have prior programming knowledge and experience , it should not be too hard for u.
I am a 22 year old engineer from Bombay.I passed out of college 1 year back.I HAD NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE in any programming language.I am from electronics background so i did not have any computer knowledge too.
I passed the Java Certification Exam 3 months ago after studying for about 3 months.
What i would advise is that u should take ur time for clearing up ur mind and gaining confidence in Java.One way is to give as many mock exams as possible.This site itself has a very good one, under the 'Roundup' section.Also check out the links section.
As for studying for a month and giving the exam , I cant really comment on that.
Best of Luck and keep cool.
